Yeah, but if they didn't do it this way, you could have a situation where it is in the best interest of the two teams in the later game to tie or even for one team to throw the game.

The best solution is just to go to a good sports bar and watch both games at the same time, I think.

The rapidity of today's communication sometimes nullifies this though; I recall a terrible finish to a match in the last Cup (Mexico and Italy I think) where news came through both would be progressing regardless of the result in the other match and so they were keen to pass the ball around for about five minutes and the other team made no attempt to retrieve it.

Disgraceful, to say the least.

the worst example for arrangement dates back to worldcup 1982 in Spain.
Germany and Austria clashed for their last group game in the city of Gijon. soon after the 1:0 for germany both teams settled on something like non-agression pact. this result made it possible to germany & austria to go through the next round but meant the end of the road to algeria.
this was one of the darkest hours in our german soccer history. even today the german supporters are ashamed of that non-performance. we still call it "die Schande von Gijon" (transl. the disgrace of gijon) the dutch newspaper 'Volksgrant' wrote: this game will go down as 'a piece of football porno' to make history.

Yeah but I think at the time they kept the staggered kick-off times for each match.

In a way FIFA's measure is the right decision but with the advances in modern communication it's hardly foolproof.

Anyway we start the final round of group games tonight. I'm hanging around for the Italy/Czech-Ghana/USA matches, there should be excitement there.

I would love Czech Rep and US to qualify but that seems to be one of the less likely scenarios......
I think Czech and Italy will draw and US will take points of Ghana to ensure the Europeans qualify.....

Who do you think will won the cup ?
I was rather impressed by Argentina...
I was UNimpressed by Brazil... but maybe they're hiding their game and preserving themselves... who knows.
From what i saw, i thought Spain was good too...

I would like my team too won but they won't, they're pretty crappy and i think we'll be very lucky if they reach second turn ... i'll have to give my heart to the English team... (i couldn't watch them, how are they playing ?)

Holy Shit , I've only saw now with precision , yesterday TOGO WAS ROBBED !!! The 2 most cleared P.K.s in this cup . After all that polemics , Fifa "answered" them . Christ that was horrible , terrible . And it's not the 1st time , Africans have been stoled on this cup specially gainst europeans . Remember that PK for Ghana against Italy , it wasnt given ...... What a shame

Specially given that Mr. Blatter is switz . Whatta Shame

Togo WAS STEALED , ROBBED , FUCKED UP MERCILESS , SHAMELESS

Fifa- Example of Shame

Argentina

Brazil celebrated the win over Australia the same way a college team would have - like they didn't expect to win or something.

I think that Sweden - England will be an extremely boring match resulting in a draw that would move both teams through.

Although I still hope that I'm wrong and Sweden can pull the upset and force England to play Germany in the round of 16...

Remember that game, really awful, also another darkest hour for West Germany in that World Cup was Schumachers terrible lunge at Battiston against France, swallowed his tongue, lost teeth and Schumacher didnt even get booked, disgusting, glad they got beaten in the final.
